The school board must also publish the total compensation package for any consultant hired for administrative duties. Such information shall be published on the Department's website. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education must create a central repository of information for all districts, which will include public access to school district financial and policy information. The Department must establish clear standards to ensure that all school district submissions contain all necessary information. In addition, the Department must maintain the information online and update it. The Department may contract with one or more entities to create and maintain the repository. (Section 165.111)
